Blog commenting extra benefits
Definitely you want to keep saving your website from google penalty, isn’t it? Perhaps, most of your answers will be YES.
Anchor ratio: most websites get penalized for using their main keyword or money keyword with exact match anchor text. Google likes to limit using exact match anchor text below 1% of total backlinks.
Maintain the following anchor ratio when creating backlinks.
80-90% your brand name as an anchor text
10% of partial match anchor text
<1% of your exact match keyword as anchor text.

If your website contains 100% do-follow backlinks from all 115 (as an example); google robots will flag it as spammy backlinks profile. If you use your main keywords with exact match anchor text 100 times, Google will take action against it.
So, what to do to limit the google penalty for bad backlinks profile?
Start blog commenting
Simple, start building basic backlinks profile with blog comments. When commenting use anchor variations like; click here, for more details, see here etc. Use, synonymous keywords related to your money keywords, use nacked links in the website field.
You also can create other basic backlinks like Profile backlinks on high authority sites. Medium.com and mix could be an example.
Web 2.0 backlinks
You can get easily contextual backlinks (your service link) from high domain authority websites like blogger.com, wordpress.com, tumblr.com etc.
What is the safe ratio of backlinks profile?
If your site contains 150 total backlinks, ideally do follow may come 60%, rest of the links must be nofollow, that’s natural. Use exact anchor text below 1% of total BL.
So, blog comments backlinks are a great way to promote your site legally, also helpful for avoiding google penalizing issues. Try to apply other methods to build basic/foundational backlinks.
